BTMR 2018 Mountain Racer


SKU: N/A Category:

Carson Footwear is very proud to work with the We learned about this race a few years ago at the If you get a chance to visit Manitou Springs and run the trail or climb the incline you'll understand why so many great runners come out of this place. For us, the challenge was to build a shoe that could handle the demands of one of the most demanding climbs around. We built the 12/12 sole with this race in mind but we can also build it on the 10/10 if you like to be a little closer to the earth.

  • All of our shoes are zero-drop and made to order by hand, with love, in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
  • Sole/Midsole: US sourced BASF polyurethane
  • Upper: US sourced Mesh Light Flexible and drys quick
  • This product does contain Imported Suede and TPU
  • 5mm removable EVA sockliner added protection

Note: Options include

  • Vegan build just let us know in the notes no additional charge for this.
  • Bushwhacker build If your hard on shoes and want us to add some reinforcements let us know. There is a charge for this so please email for an estimate.

    I’ve only got about 50 miles on these shoes, but I love them enough that I plan to get another pair of Carsons.

    I’m accustomed to running in Altras. I’m one of those folks who wrecked their feet by transitioning too quickly with VFFs — I’m 170 pounds, and back then I was running on pavement — so I assumed I’d need a long transition period with these. It doesn’t appear that way. The longest run I’ve done in them so far was six miles, but I’m using them almost exclusively now & wearing them for 4-5 runs a week.

    I opted for the rock plate as there’s a lot of basalt on some of the trails where I run. I’ve been on a few rocky trails with the rock plate and had only the occasional twinge, but I haven’t run on sharp basalt or extremely rocky trails. I may keep using the Altras for those trails (I use them for hiking as well), but these Carsons are extremely comfortable on trails with embedded river rock.
